I love my IPad also. I could get more quilting done if it wasn't for this toy.

We use our I-Pad for quilting! I even have an app that looks where I am and then tells me (map or list form) all quilting stores near where I am.

I've not figured out how to print from it either. I end up running downstairs, loading up the desktop and printing if I need to print.

The I-pad is small and light - so it fits into my sewing space (unlike a laptop).

My son-in-law gave me his old iPad when he got the iPad 2. Now I wonder how I ever got along without it. I download books from the public library and have downloaded lots of old books with expired copyrights. I love reading books on my iPad because I can get a large font. This weekend, I was able to watch the 20/20 segment on Pat Summitt again. I like that fact that I can put TV apps on the iPad. As for quilting, I have two quilting apps that I really like - - QuiltCalc which lets you calculate the yardage needed for quilts, etc. and BlockFab-HD which gives you lots of quilt blocks, you can look at them in different colors, and it gives all the information you need for making a quilt with the block selected. Both apps are free. I have been very ill for the past 2 weeks. During that time, I have been reading the Quilting Board on my iPad. I was able to lie down and begin learning how to navigate the new format. As you can see, I love my iPad!

I love my Ipad2!!! I get my emails, take pics, download books to read, play games, banking, directions, watch Direct TV, get coupons, Skype and FaceTime with my grandkids. I would be lost without it.
I did not get the IPad with the G3 options. Everyone has Free WIFI so you really don't need the the G3. I had a IPad and my husband loved it so and went out and got me the Ipad2. Lol

I like QuiltCalc by Kaufman. It is really nice.
